These are my recent FO's, that i was finally able to take a few photos of.
Pattern: Plaid Mittens (http://alison.knitsmiths.us/pattern_plaid_mittens.html) by Alison Hansel.
Yarn: Taiga Melody and FF Filati Over.
Needles: 5.5mm.
Mods: Smaller needles than required and one thumb gusset less, all due to my sister's small hands :teehee:.



And the socks for my dad:

Pattern: Viking Socks (http://lykkeogloekker.blogspot.com/2007/10/viking-socks-pattern-release.html) by Lykkefanten.
Yarn: Peterle Strumpfwolle 6-fach, 75% superwash wool 25% nylon.
Needles: 3.00mm.

The pattern required some thought from me on the construction part, since it's not as specific as Cookie A.'s patterns, for example.


The back cable:



The cables don't pop up as they could have with this yarn, but they are still visible and look pretty good to me!

Thank you everyone :hug:! I hope my sister will like the mittens - she's crazy for pink! And i'm sure that even though my dad refuses any knitted socks (he feels uncomfortable that i'll spend time making him something), as a present he won't mind them at all:happydance:

I just love your socks, If your dad do not accept them, you can always send them on over to me. The mittens are very cute, might have to make a pair for my two year old.

Thanks! I'm pretty sure he will :teehee: I'm not so sure you can adjust the mittens for a toddler. I haven't mentioned it, but my sister is 22 years old with small hands :teehee:, so these mittens are small adult size and are designed for Rowan Plaid or similar chunky yarn, so maybe you can use the general structure with much thinner yarn:thumbsup:.

The socks are a great guy gift, and the mitts are fun. I like the fuzzy yarn.

I think I will just use a plain old kids mittens pattern and substitute the ribbed cuff with the funky fur yarn. Should be a quick knit.
